Entering School-Based Assessments A beginner’s guide on to using the School-Based Assessments data-entry application
What is the School-Based Assessments application? It is a data-entry application that allows teachers and school administrators to input and store their own assessments and see the results instantly in MyData. Using selection filters, you can identify the groups of students you want to input scores for. Your selection can be as broad as the entire school or as specific as a teacher’s classroom. You can go in at any time and update or edit information.
Who can access this application? Teachers and administrators, including those with school- wide MyData access, can access this application and enter school-based assessments for their students.
Can we see a demo? Let’s begin! Click to move through the following slides…

Use the selection filters on the left- hand side of the screen to select those students for which you need to enter data.
School site administrators will have to select the Preferred Location, or campus, before making any other selections. Teachers will automatically default to a location. Fields with * are required fields.
Once you select your Preferred Location, you can continue to narrow the list of students based on the other available filters.
After selecting Preferred Location, the Track and Teacher filters will refresh with information specific to the school.
For secondary schools, if you want to select students in a particular course, you must select the associated Department first.
All the other filters display the same values regardless of the school. If no student records return after selecting your criteria, it may be because the choices do not apply to your school’s population (e.g., selecting “Filipino” and “Limited English Proficient”).
After identifying the students you want, you need to select the assessment for which you need to enter data.
Once you have set your Selection and Assessment Filters, click Search to display the selected students.
You can now start entering assessments. Use only the columns that apply.
